Hello! My name is Caitlin and I am a reliable and creative person with a wide range of experience in working with children. I am currently seeking part time sitting opportunities!
I have worked as a babysitter/nanny for 10+ years. Additionally I have worked as a music therapist, piano instructor, toddler/infant music teacher, and camp counselor. In caring for and working with children, I value the importance of a maintaining a structured environment that still leaves plenty of room for spontaneity and creativity. I am a caregiver who prefers to limit technology based play, as I prefer to encourage children to engage in hands on activities that cultivate their imagination. I love to incorporate arts & crafts, music, and outdoor time into our day. I find opportunities to teach children about the world through exploration and age appropriate activities. I approach each day with patience, openness, and creativity. I am also skilled and experienced in the areas of lego house building, game playing, silly song singing, and spontaneous dance parties!
I have worked with children ages 3 months to 13 years. My music therapy experience has also given me the opportunity to work with individuals with various special needs and psychiatric conditions. I have worked in two different psychiatric care facilities where I provided music therapy to children, adolescents, and adults. I feel that my variety of work experiences have given me an extensive skill set for providing exceptional childcare.
I am a person who has a great passion for life - I love to make music, to be in nature, and to travel – I dream of seeing as much of the world as I possibly can. I love photography and I enjoy scrapbooking the moments and memories I capture. I am passionate about hooping (dancing that incorporates a hula hoop!), and I also enjoy yoga and hope to study circus aerial performance someday. In my life, I simply hope to never stop learning, exploring and finding things to be passionate about.
Upon request, I have multiple contacts available for references, including families in New Jersey, Boston, the DC metro area, and Philadelphia. Looking forward to talking to you soon!
